    • The Jail Notebook, the sole surviving written scripts by Shaheed Bhagat Singh while he was in jail - he actually wrote 4 books while he was in the jail of which unfortunately none survives - which is full of notes and his musings shows us the voracious reader he was. An extremely well-read man with a brilliant mind, that is the persona of Bhagat Singh which will be revealed to the reader while reading his Jail Notebook.Apart from his jail notebook, this title has some of his other papers and let [...]


    • Although it is only a minimalistic fragment of the genius inscribed into the mind of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, this jail notebook & other letters written by him opens up a whole new and extremely gigantic (in proportions) territory for everyone to see. As mentioned in this book, Bhagat Singh apparently wrote 4 books on different topics (ranging from Socialism to the history of Mankind, things required to do be done in India & what not) while he was in the Lahore Jail but to our great loss, t [...]


    • A must read for any Indian. It totally changed my opinion of Bhagat Singh. Contrary to popular portrayal of a revolutionary, he was a great thinker as well. The arguments which he puts forwards supporting equality, student agitations & atheism are truly amazing. I wish this was part of our academic curriculum. But knowing the content I know why it isn't.



    • The Letters written by Shaheed Bhagat Singh open ups a new insight that everyone should know, a must read!!



    • An essential book to understand the living man behind the name of Bhagat Singh. The author has done a commendable job by putting together the notebook with rich annotations, which helps the reader understand the cultural context of his notes. We also get to see his literary sources. The priceless essay "Why I am an Atheist" is a welcome addition.


    • Respect for Bhagat Singh turns into an awe after reading this book ! He had unbelievable insights on Social and Political science at that tender age i.e literally in his teens. He wrote 4 books in jail on various topics. All these books although smuggled out of jail got lost somewhere (what a loss !).For all Bhagat Singh fans interested to know him closely, this book is highly recommended.


    • Bhagat Singh was a voracious reader and there is something poignant about going through his jail notebook with its quotes and jotting-downs.More here:inkquilletc/2014/0
